What a time we have, up here in Heaven.
– My man Stefan Maier turned me on to the music of Elaine Radigue, which is lovely.
– He likewise pointed me to the arcane folk at MSHR, who do…well, many things. “Ritual techno”? “Witch-house-hackathon”? Take a gander. (and think about LaMont Young, while you’re at it).
– Fugue Machine, by Alexandernaut, basically won the internet this week. Multiple play heads! Variable pitch / speed / direction! Amazing!
– While we’re here, Sonic Pi looks pretty great, as far as livecoding goes.
– GCHQ remain evil bastards who have no love. They’re watching you, now.
– But, China trumps the West: new “credit scores” in China are going to include social data, behavioural data, and the same data from your friends. Yes, that is as bad as it sounds.
– In slightly better news, some people are working on a mesh network for New York.
